The Washington teen who reportedly killed himself after shooting five students, two fatally, during lunch is said by police to have invited them to the cafeteria via text message.

Jaylen Fryberg, 15, invited five classmates at Marysville-Pickchuck High School to lunch only moments before shooting up the table with a .40-caliber Beretta handgun, police told the Seattle Times.

Fryberg was pronounced dead at the scene. Gia Soriano and Zoe Galasso, both 14, died from their gun shot wounds at a local hospital.

Andrew Fryberg, 15, and Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, 14, are in critical condition, sources told the paper. Nate Hatch, 14, is steadily recovering from his injuries.

At least two of the shooting victims are related to the shooter, according to reports.

Police said in a statement that further information will come as it is deemed fit to be made available.

Authorities did say previous reports of a teacher confronting Fryberg in the cafeteria during the rampage were incorrect.

Investigators have not publicly commented on a motive, but mounting evidence suggests jealousy over a girl fueled the violent outburst.
